If it’s Tuesday, it must be…. Yorkshire.

Goodness me.  Christine and Max, our French friends from our days in Laroque arrived on Saturday, and it’s only Tuesday today.  Look what we’ve crammed in….

      1. We have unmortared stone walls but I don’t know if that makes them the same. Where I live in upstate New York is very rocky and farmers pick stones out of their land so they can plant. The stones get piled up to make the walls. I remember my father and grandfather being exhausted after a day of picking stones.
